Throwback Photos of BC Coast Pilots at work

The BC Coast Pilots have been dedicated to keeping 15,000 miles of the province’s waters safe since the mid-1800s. As you may be aware, Pilotage is required within Compulsory Pilotage Areas on vessels by the Pilotage Act and under the Canadian Transportation Act. Our Pilots use vast knowledge of local waters to protect B.C.’s ecologically-sensitive marine habitat by guiding ships safely in and out of ports and waterways. Here are some throwback shots all taken on our beautiful coast.
